    Actors I like, director I like but is never quite what I want, good action, good ultra-masculine bro-culture, good badass and interesting female characters, great locations and some not good stuff.

    Enjoyable action-er in Roman times.

    One great scene which involves great balls of fire. Everything else is like a few hundred films went through a copier machine which was running out of ink.

    Gorgeous locations, Good performances from fassbender and wright, cornball plot; what it lacks in much-needed restraint in most scenes, it does make up for in spades during the highly visceral, but over-shot, action scenes.

    A gleefully violent meat-and-potatoes historical action flick.

    Don't go into this expecting anything deep or profound. Neil Marshall is interested in only one thing, crafting a fun, thrilling and sometimes shockingly violent chase film.

    One has to wonder if this movie had come out a year or two later, once Fassbender's star had begun to ascend, then it could have been a much bigger hit.

    I thought this film was absolutely bloody brilliant.

    I'm twenty minutes in and I think I can tell what the rest of the film is like, a history film released by a major studio that is poorly made with no participation of the crew besides Fassbender, and you can just judge this film by the opening credits.

    Fassbender is just average in this lead role. A true movie star would have shone more. He's a great actor in the right role but a truly great actor should be able to rise above average. The movie is perhaps a wee bit over your standard made for tv genre flick. It does get a star for the outdoor locations.

    Romans on the run in barbarous Scotland. A bit silly, very gory but notable for an early Fassbender lead role. Entertaining enough for a rainy afternoon but nothing more.

    Fun, simple, not too cheesy. Well acted at times. And brutal.

    An enjoyable romp but ultimately unfulfilling. All Vesuvius, no eruption; all aqueduct, no water; all Pomp-eii, no ceremony.

    Would you like to know more?

    Still just as fun as the first time I saw it! Extra points for not using green screen!
